New Poem: “November in Portland” in Impossible Archetype, Issue 6

Issue 6 of Impossible Archetype (a free PDF download) is now out and it includes my latest poem, “November in Portland.” It’s a poem based loosely on the death of a classmate in high school in the Pacific Northwest, a setting that cannot help but underline any given mood.

I’m always happy when I’m included a new issue, and this issue continues the journal’s tradition of great, thought-provoking, variegated poetry by LGBTQ+ poets.
